How We Work
Since 1970, Resources for Human Development has provided a wide range of human services for the most vulnerable members of our society. People with developmental disabilities, people with mental health challenges, people in addiction recovery, children and families, and people experiencing homelessness have all benefited from the compassionate care and support provided through RHD programs.
RHD’s mission is to provide caring, effective, and innovative services that empower people of all abilities as they work to achieve the highest level of independence possible and build better lives for themselves, their families and their communities.
Each year, RHD provides essential day and residential services to more than 25,000 individuals, while RHD’s community health centers provide care to more than 24,000 patients.
RHD strives to develop programs that demonstrate innovation, effectiveness, caring, flexibility, and efficiency. Governmental agencies, private groups, and individuals come to RHD with needs and ideas. RHD provides program planning and implementation expertise, ongoing programmatic and technical assistance and financial and administrative support.
Join Us! RHD is always interested in talking with provider organizations who might consider coming under the umbrella of RHD services. If you would like to talk about mergers and affiliation activities, please contact M&A@RHD.ORG
